Tennessee Mothers Donate Breast Milk After Parents Hurt in Buggy Crash

There’s nothing like a community coming together to help one another. Especially parents hurt in the midst of taking care of their children. This past Saturday, an Amish buggy was traveling on Highway 43 and was struck by a car and sent a family of three to the hospital. The driver of the vehicle now faces vehicular assault and DUI charges.

After the family of three including mother, father and a baby girl were treated airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center they were released, and the baby girl did not respond well to formula. After contacting the midwife that delivered their baby girl, they found that breast milk was needed. They were able to team up with Certified Professional Midwife Stacie Smith-Hunt of Lawrence County and had a call of donations. Nearly 1,500 oz of breast milk was given within just 24 hours.
